For some of us, Indians, it is almost instinctive that coconut is good for us. It is very much part of our lives. But for those of us not familiar with it or have migrated far… let us revisit this wonderful fruit and all it has for us. Its benefit is mainly due to the unusual combination of short and medium fatty acids. Its popularity is now reaching new heights as its health benefits are recognized and advertised. Coconut oil pills are now available in those not-so-tropic areas as well. Coconut water is now packaged and shipped far and wide.
